Правовая информация и подготовка в области земельных прав

The state provides legal information and training through the Instituto de Patrocínio e Assistência Jurídica (IPAJ) which functions under the supervision of the Ministry of Justice. The Institution is mainly faced with cases brought by women concerning maintenance and inheritance. Although the IPAJ is active in several provinces, it is most predominant in Maputo (11).

The Legal Research Directorate (DIL) of the Ministry of Justice has the objective to “promote, educate and divulge laws and programmes with a legal character to all citizens.” It disseminates information through radio programmes in national languages and through newspapers and comic strips (11).

The Centre for Judicial Studies and Training, Centro de Formacao Juridica e Juriciaria (CFJJ), has been established in order to increase the capacity and efficiency of the justice sector in disseminating legal information. Its main goal is to train legal personnel, judges, prosecutors and legal defenders. It also promotes the distribution of legal texts to the provinces (11).

The Human Rights League, Associação Mulher, Lei e Desenvovimento (Muleide), Women and Law in Southern Africa (WLSA) Mozambique and the Association of Women in Legal Careers all provide legal counsel to women in difficulty concerning awareness of rights and access to justice facilities (14).

The new Land Law sensitization campaigns have been integrated into literacy programmes in which non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that were involved with disseminating the Land Bill specifically targeted women whose rights had been violated, in order to inform them of their legal rights and restore those rights (18).

The University of Eduardo Mondlane (UEM) and the Centros dos Estudos Africanos (CEA) also play a role in gender mainstreaming. They are a useful source of documentation and information concerning existing gender inequalities (4).
